After a state government ordinance on Jallikattu, the bull-taming event was held in certain places in Tamil Nadu. But the protesters want more. They are asking for a "permanent solution" to the issue. Tamil Nadu Chief Minister O Panneerselvam has said that he would bring in a draft of permanent law in the state assembly soon. On We The People, we ask: does Jallikattu involve cruelty to animals to the point where it ought to be banned? Should the government be issuing ordinances to get around court verdicts every time they prove to be unpopular with the public? Are we moving from rule of the law to mob rule?
